Appearance: golden peach in color with a very thin layer of head at the surface.

Smell: smells like candied fruits with a faint tartness. Also notes of plums and bananas. Yeast is upfront - there's no doubt you're drinking a Belgian style beer.

Taste: sweet with notes of esters. Very fruity with prominent notes of pitted fruits and subtle notes of banana and slightly spicy at the finish.

Mouthfeel: medium-bodied, slick, and almost chewy.

Overall: the flavors are heavy and the mouthfeel is almost thick. It's not a sipper but it's not exactly a beer you crush through on a hot day. Regardless, I enjoyed the beer.

L: Cloudy yellow orange with a small creamy head and fingers of lacing around the glass.

S: Belgian yeast, coriander, pepper, banana and bubblegum, toasted cracker malt. Good aroma.

T: Corainder, pepper and clove, hints of banana, some bitterness, a slightly weird spicy astringency in the finish. Finishes fairly dry.

F: Medium body and fairly high carbonation.

O: A nice Belgian pale that definitely shows off the Belgian yeast.

Aroma has coriander, wheat, grass.
The taste also had coriander but opens up nicely with fruit and yeast. A hint of peppery spice and alcohol. Finished bitter. Easy drinking for the ABV. One of the better examples of the style.
